More About the Author

My current work teaching Silicon Valley folk new methods for using their minds more creatively seems a fanciful leap from my country origins. I was born into the fourth generation of cattle ranchers in California and Arizona, so I guess that makes me one of the few remaining Americans who actually did the work of a cowboy while growing up - it was not so glamorous actually. I was eager to head back east to Princeton - and from then on it was non-stop change ... government-funded EEG mind/psychedelic research in the late sixties ... meditation and mind-brain exploration and research plus working as a therapist in the seventies ... several year-long journeys south into Indian realms where I felt most at home.

In the eighties, I moved my base of operations to Europe, working as a therapist and educator and writer - and found people seriously eager to plunge into the deeper mind-management methods I'd been developing. Also - after a number of fulfilling and enlightening but not-quite-right relationships, I finally found the love of my life in Switzerland ... and then off we went to Hawaii to start a family (most fulfilling of all) and go deeper into mind-brain explorations, culminating in the late '80s with the creation of the BrightMind Network and the very beginnings of what is now called The WizeWell Process.

Our boys grew up and went to college in California, and after almost 20 years in paradise, Birgitta and I moved 2 years ago to Santa Cruz and are now working over the hill in Silicon Valley - where finally the times are right for my 'cognitive shifting' and innovation-activation training to be well received. During the last decade I've been finalizing my life work developing short-form awareness-expansion techniques and Focus Phrase methods for quickly quieting the mind and shifting into present-moment engagement and enjoyment.

Quite a number of related books have emerged along the way - and now Birgitta and I are fully engrossed in launching a new mind-tech company called WizeWell. Most of the 2 dozen John Selby books you'll find on sale at Amazon have led up to these new cognitive tools -
